Divination Cards - for the Week beginning Monday 25th May 2015


I hope you have enjoyed your bank holiday weekend?

I've spent most of mine doing housework, trying to have a clear out, and re-organising my office/workroom - but I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped...

However, I can at least now see a table top which had been buried for several months!

I shall have to tackle some more next weekend now - as the rest of the week I shall be busy catching up with my orders!

On with the cards!

Please find your message for the week ahead below, and whatever your star sign - have a great week :)

Brightest Blessings,

This week I am using

  The Wicca Pack

by Sally Morningstar

Quoted from the pack: "The Wicca Pack, weaving magic into your life. Contains the Wicca Book and set of Divinatory cards. Wiccan Magic. learn the basics of working with high magic, the importance of sacred spaces, the timing of high days and holy days, and the correct use of magical crafts.

Connect with the archetypes of the ancient Pagan deities, and use the beautifully illustrated cards to develop your latent intuitive skills and explore the world of natural magic through inner spiritual work."

Here are your messages and insights for this week. Try to sit quietly for a few moments, meditate on your card and think about how you can learn from, and act upon, its message...

* * * * * * *


RAVEN - Keeper of Secrets

High Note: Occult gifts are being activated.

Low Note: Shadows on the soul require attention.

Vibration: Soul.

Keywords: Occult knowledge, magic, mastery.

Meaning: Raven arrives at those times when the veils are thin between your worlds, giving you the ability to shape your reality through integration of spirit and matter. As you let go into the void and really trust the process, you will be led to understandings of your current situation, based upon knowledge of the greater picture.

Trust any visions at this time and know that the nature of light is to penetrate darkness, in order for integration to take place.

You are in the process of shedding light upon situations in your life and are being initiated into her mysteries. Keep secrets and hold your tongue.

* * * * * * *


SPIRAL - Attraction

High Note: Change is coming.

Low Note: Release, let go, prepare.

Vibration: Formative ethers

Keywords: Attraction, release, movement.

Meaning: Spiral indicates that this is the time to draw toward you what you need at the moment in order to progress your position in life. You may need to release something in order for new situations to be drawn in.

By letting go, one creates a space within that automatically calls to be filled. This vacuum can contain any kind of energy, so be aware how you fill it.

Treat life as a dance at the moment - a combination of action and non-action, growth and rest, and see it all as the cosmic wheel of your evolution. Try not to reject those things that you need (but may not want) at this time. You are attracting attention.

* * * * * * *



High Note: Seeds of creation are being sown.

Low Note: What you put in is what you get out. Challenge hidden fears.

Vibration: Sacral Chakra.

Keywords: The void, potential, wise intention.

Meaning: Cauldron symbolizes the potential you have at this time to create your own reality, your own direction and outcome. However, be aware that as creator you will need to be fully conscious of what you are trying to achieve, being realistic and un-manipulative, to avoid limiting yourself and your unfolding destiny. Remember, if you place love and compassion in your cauldron and stir it with wisdom, you are likely to create the same thing in your world, because one of the great laws of the universe states that, “As you give, so shall you receive.”

Pregnancy is likely, as is the birth of a new situation in your life. Remember that if you want something to manifest for you, start giving it out. For example, the road to abundance begins with giving unconditionally. Create a world that you are happy to live in, welcome the state of emptiness that comes before any major change or growth; fill it with intentions that enhance your situation - and so give birth to a life you love living.

* * * * * * *


SPELL - Enchantment

High Note: A wish shall be granted.

Low Note: Illusions and fantasies are being uncovered.

Vibration: Astral

Keywords: Enchantment, illusion, fantasy.

Meaning: Spell indicates that enchantment is in the air - that a magical time is coming into your life, especially if you have been calling for something.

Spell also advises you to look at self delusion. Like Rumpelstiltskin after his long sleep, you may well find that you “wake up” from a dream or illusion when this card appears.

See life as it presents itself, and remember that when you follow the ways of the wise, you will always be shown the truth. Expect it to be revealed.

* * * * * * *



High Note: Fun and celebration are indicated.

Low Note: Be honorable. Find what makes you truly happy.

Vibration: Base Chakra

Keywords: Life force, inhibitions, joy.

Meaning: If the Horned God appears, your desires may be out of balance. You may be feeling the need to seek more genuine joy and deeper connectedness in your life, by freeing emotions and inhibitions.

However, life is not always about “having a good time” - be responsible and committed too. The Horned God reminds us that we need to give thanks for what we receive, to celebrate our life.

If you are stressed or unwell, the Horned God indicates that you may need this time to “be natural,” to be yourself. If it seems that your life is not your own, take steps to integrate yourself with those who support and affirm who you would like to be. Let go.

* * * * * * *



High note: Love is your greatest ally.

Low note: Be a good friend, guard your tongue.

Vibration: Astral

Keywords: Ally, support, friendships.

Meaning: When the Familiar appears, it indicates that friendships are highlighted, as are allies to your cause. Observe where contact with others is taking you, celebrating harmony and challenging conflict.

Call upon your familiar to watch situations for you and to warn you of anything requiring careful attention to detail. You may need help the and support of close friends: do not be afraid to ask for what you need.

* * * * * * *


CANDLE - Illumination

High Note: Your inner light guides your way.

Low Note: Energy management is required.

Vibration: Throat Chakra.

Keywords: Illumination, sacrifice, inner radiance.

Meaning: Candle is a sign of holding yourself as an example to life. You may have felt worn down or overworked recently, in order to fulfil demands. However, you can be sure that if you are making sacrifices for the benefit of the greater good… your life will shine with radiance as a result of the sacrifices you make.

Magically speaking, you are being advised to focus upon the light that you carry and to develop ways of working that help not only yourself, but also those around you. The Candle card also point to utilizing candle magic in order to reach greater understanding. Trust in the source of your guidance, but do be aware that flames can burn as well as illuminate.

Candle can therefore reveal that you may be about to burn out. Perhaps things have been getting out of control. This definitely shows that lessons need to be learned about energy management and how to improve it. Grounding yourself regularly will assist your current situation, as will tempering the flame with rest and contemplation. Try to gently discover more about the way your energy works - what makes you tired and what enlivens you - don’t push yourself or your desires too hard.

* * * * * * *


SHEKINAH - Transcendence

High Note: Dreams can come true.

Low Note: You are not alone.

Vibration: Heaven on Earth.

Keywords: Transcendence, karmic purpose, faith.

Meaning: Our lady Shekinah, Queen of the Stars, shines her radiance upon you. As one of her children, you are travelling this universe, fulfilling the dreams of creation. What is your dream? What do you wish for? To find one’s soul purpose is the quest. How does your quest fit into the myths and legends of your land?

“Transcend all limitations” is the message of this card - to rise above earthly restrictions if one is feeling heavy, or to touch the earth if one is feeling confused and alone. Turn to Shekinah for illumination and guidance. Seek the company of those who are wise. Have faith to find yourself, enjoy your earthly life, and follow your dream.

* * * * * * *



High Note: Clear vision now creates your future.

Low Note: Follow your own counsel.

Vibration: Third Eye Chakra

Keywords: Insight, divination, vision.

Meaning: Crystal Ball shows that you have the ability to see in its real sense - to see beyond illusions and distractions, having a sense of many levels. Once we can detach from third-dimensional restrictions, we can travel to other realms to find what it is that we seek. Potentials and possibilities can be realized now, because your vision is clear enough to bring them into reality.

Clarity of vision can sometimes seem isolating. Time with water will show that each drop of water makes up a river, as each river makes up an ocean. Follow the course that is right for you and you will meet up with others whose river is flowing to the same ocean as yours.

* * * * * * *


BLACK CAT - Psychism

High Note: Visionary skills guide your way

Low Note: Psychic awareness is required.

Vibration: Third Eye Chakra

Keywords: Psychism, clairvoyance, psychic protection Meaning: Black cat says, keep your psychic feelers open in order to maintain clarity in your psychic space. However, it is not so much a case of “beware” more to “be aware.” The energetic realm is as real s the physical one, and energies around you at this time can guide you to great clarity.

Patience may well be required. Tread with awareness, using your psychic skills. Black cat also says, watch those in your circle of acquaintances, as someone may not have your best interests at heart. Increase your psychic protection, withdraw your energy for a while, and do what cats do best - curl up and rest!

* * * * * * *


NEMESIS - Lessons

High Note: The powers of truth will prevail.

Low Note: Embrace the lessons that life must bring if you are to grow.

Vibration: Soul

Keywords: Lessons, Karma, destiny.

Meaning: Nemesis visiting at this time is a sign that she has witnessed what has been happing around you. She is observing and noticing the thoughts, words and deeds of others, and stands as guardian in order to offer protection and acknowledgement of some form of injustice. Pray to her for illumination. Understand that life sometimes has to go pear-shaped in order for rightness to emerge.

You are in the process of helping someone or something to emerge into their own light, and the truth of your situation will shortly be revealed, both to you and anyone else involved. Don’t seek revenge or retribution. Keep your dignity at all times. Wait and watch as things unfold.

* * * * * * *


CRONE - Release

High note: Life is changing. Embrace your wisdom.

Low note: Challenge small self. There is no need to stand in the dark.

Vibration: Crown Chakra

Keywords: Wisdom, release, maturity

Meaning: The crone sees that you are being called to the wisdom place, to go within and release any attachments to the outside world at the moment, so that you can gather understanding of your current experiences and so make sense of your life. A maturity is called for that gives no place to familiar emotional patterns or thought processes, but rather uses each opportunity to see beyond the illusions of small self and so step into a far greater reality.

The Crone coming into your life now shows that you have just experienced (or will shortly experience) a change or release that requires some deep responses. You are being advised to let go and let life shape itself.

Divination Cards - for the Week beginning Monday 18th May 2015


Just flying in with your cards for the week beginning Monday 18th May!

However, I also thought you might want to read up about this Mercury Retrograde period which, in case you didn't realise, starts today and ends June 11th!

There are loads of articles on the internet, but here's one I picked at random - which also has relevant info for each of the star signs:

I don't usually have a very easy retrograde - and I've been feeling the effects already - with problems with my internet connection for the past week...

So hang on to your hats, we're probably in for a bumpy ride, but we'll get through it!

Good luck everyone!

Please find your card and message for the week ahead below, and whatever your star sign - have a great week :)

Brightest Blessings,

This week I am using the beautiful 

Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards

by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.

Quoted from the pack: "The Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards are specifically designed to help you manifest your goals, life purpose, and Divinely inspired dreams. These 44 beautifully illustrated cards can help you swim into the ocean of your unconscious mind, where profound thoughts and feelings can create - or block - your heart's desire. The cards are easy to use, and the enclosed guidebook will help you perform amazingly accurate readings for yourself and others."

Here are your messages and insights for this week. Try to sit quietly for a few moments, meditate on your card and think about how you can learn from, and act upon, its message...

* * * * * * *



It's time to look at other possibilities. It's a good time to make changes.

Divinatory meaning: Sometimes we think, This is the way it is, and we don’t see other options. By drawing this card, Heaven now asks you to question any situation that you think can’t be changed.
Take a moment and pretend that a magical mermaid has granted you three wishes. You can have anything you want! What will you wish for? The truth is that most anything you desire is possible, and this card asks you to explore your options. At first, you might do so mentally - through daydreams and night time dreams.
Then it’s important to turn those possibilities into realities by breaking them into small goals that you can accomplish today. When you explore new opportunities, the energy of the Universe begins flowing in the direction of your dreams. Any step that you take - no matter how small - will help you see options that you may never have noticed before.

* * * * * * *



You’ve been working hard. Take a nap and get some rest.

Divinatory meaning: This card asks you to slow down, rest, and be very gentle with yourself right now. Can you cancel your appointments today (or for part of the day) and take a nap? By drawing this card, you’re urged to let go of unnecessary activities, and to focus on self-renewal.

Give yourself a hug, look in the mirror, and say, “I love you. I promise to treat you with the respect and care that you deserve. You’re wonderful!”

No rushing or time urgency is allowed today! This is a day of sweet kindness, where you treat yourself as gently as a baby cradled in your arms.

* * * * * * *



Someone wants to help you. Think of whom that might be, and initiate contact.

Divinatory meaning: There's a person who can help you reach your desired outcome. You've probably already thought of whom this person might be. Or it could be a new person coming into your life whom you'll soon meet.

Be open to receiving help from others. Strong people learn the importance of delegating and working as a team, and this may a time for you to learn these vital life lessons. So, be sure to voice your needs and ask for assistance. With the help of others, you may be able to manifest your Divine purpose and desires.

* * * * * * *



Let go of old guilt, and remember that you're God's perfect child!

You’ve been very hard on yourself lately, using harsh words towards yourself verbally or mentally. While it’s healthy to hold yourself up to high standards, this card says you’ve bordered on self-abuse! Everyone makes mistakes, and it’s normal to feel regret occasionally. What’s important, though, is how you handle these mistakes.

As you focus on your positive attributes, your self-esteem will increase and your stress level will be diminished. Remember that guilt is the opposite of love. Your guilt doesn’t help anyone or anything, but your Divine love helps everyone, everywhere!

Affirm: “I ask that all effects of my mistakes be undone in all directions of time, and I now release all guilt completely. I love my true self, from top to bottom.”

* * * * * * *



Surround yourself with positive people and situations, and avoid negativity.

Divinatory meaning: Your manifestation work is going wonderfully well. By drawing this card, you’re encouraged to take the process to an even higher level by going on a “negativity diet.” This means avoiding negative influences as much as possible. Avoid negative discussions with yourself or others. Turn off television and radio programs with negative themes, and stay away from violent movies. Don’t read pessimistic headlines, and steer clear of gossip-based magazines. This negativity diet will cleanse you of any hidden blocks that could slow down the manifestation of your dreams - or prevent them from coming true at all.

Another thing you can do is to apply Feng Shui, the ancient art of placement, to your physical environs, which will help enhance the positive energy in all of your surroundings. You’re also asked to donate or sell items that are cluttering up your home. This helps you bring in new energy and opportunity, and will also establish an environment that promotes creativity, health and abundance.

* * * * * * *



You're a born entrepreneur, and your business is surrounded by magical opportunities.

Full meaning: You have the drive, discipline, and desire to be your own boss. This card also shows that you have the magical ingredients for a successful business. Heaven wants you to know that you’re fully supported spiritually. As long as you stay enthusiastic, new opportunities will come to you. Your positive energy attracts customers, clients and contracts.

If you’re in the process of opening a new business, now is the time to do spiritual work (praying, meditating, visualizing, and affirming); to conduct research about your business, and to work on yourself (by eating healthfully, getting sufficient sleep, and exercising regularly). These multiple layers of action will propel you to miraculous business opportunities.

* * * * * * *



Now is the perfect moment to dive in and embrace your heart's desire.

Divinatory meaning: Even though you may not feel entirely ready, this card says that there's no better time than the present to dive into your future. You're advised to take both big and small steps to move in the direction of your dreams.

Push aside everything unrelated to your life's mission. Adjust your schedule so that the bulk of your time relates to your priorities and goals. Delegate tasks to other people, or hire someone to assist you. Your responsibilities will still be met, you'll be happier, you'll enjoy greater self-esteem, and you'll attract more abundance in the long run - if you jump in and follow your heart.

* * * * * * *



The dolphins know the importance of playing, as joy creates miracles and manifestation.

Divinatory meaning: This card indicates that you’ve been straining and working too hard, and that you’ve lost your original focus. You’re striving more out of habit than out of a clear direction. The dolphins ask you to stop, and divert your attention through silliness and non-competitive play. Any kind of playfulness will shake up your ruts and routines, and allow you to regain perspective on what is important and what is not.

Playing is a magical form of meditation, ass it opens your heart chakra and allows your creative spirit to tap into Divine wisdom. If your playfulness involves outdoor physical activity, the extra oxygen will also spark new ideas for you.

* * * * * * *



Spend time alone, meditating upon what you truly desire
Full meaning: This card indicates that you need some alone time. Make a firm appointment to be by yourself in a quiet place (ideally, outside in nature or near some plants) without delay. Make sure that you'll be uninterrupted for at least one hour. Take a pad of paper and a pen with you.

Then, spend some time simply breathing, relaxing, and centering yourself. After you're completely relaxed, write down this question to your subconscious mind on your pad of paper: "What do I want to do next?" Write whatever comes to you in response, without worrying whether it's 'correct' or not. Then ask your subconscious: "What's my heart's true desire right now?" Write down the answer. Spend time noting your true priorities so that you'll know how to structure your free time to match what's important to you.

* * * * * * *



You, your loved ones, and your possessions are safe and protected by Heaven!

Divinatory meaning: Your prayers, which as for safety and protection, have been heard and answered. Any attacks or threats are now a thing of the past, washed away with the tide of Heavenly love. This love is clearing away your insecurities so that you can feel totally secure.

When you ask Heaven to watch over you, your loved ones, your home, and your possessions, your prayers are instantly answered. There’s no hesitation or delay on Heaven’s part - it’s done as soon as you ask!

Your energies can now be directed in meaningful and creative ways, with your mind clear of worries. Enjoy your day!

* * * * * * *



It’s important to only think about what you desire, not what you fear.

Divinatory meaning:

By drawing this card, you’re alerted to the extra importance of monitoring your thoughts. You have no neutral thoughts, and every one of them creates an effect in your life. So you’re being asked to be vigilant in holding only positive thoughts.

Most of us slip into negativity occasionally, and you may be no exception. However, you can ‘undo’ the effects of negative thinking by recognizing them and stating, “I now cancel that thought, and replace it with the following positive affirmation of my true Divine desires.” Then list the situations and attributes that mirror your godliness and goddessliness. During this important part of your life, you have the power to manifest your highest potential at the most rapid rate possible.

* * * * * * *



More information is needed. Contact someone with expertise in this area.

Divinatory meaning: You are venturing into an area where other people could assist you by offering you new ideas and information, as well as the benefit of their experience. To attract the right expert to help you, affirm; "A helpful, knowledgeable, experienced person with integrity is in my life right now, and this individual will help me with (describe the situation you'd like assistance with). This person comes to me easily and naturally, without delay." When this person appears, know that it's Divinely orchestrated.

Don't hesitate or feel guilty about asking for help. Instead, take notes and give thanks to the person and to Heaven. Remember, it's not a sign of weakness to ask for help. Many of Earth's most wonderful inventions came from team efforts. by working with informed individuals, you also develop the healthy habit of consulting with your celestial guides more consistently.
